Dental implants are metal screws fixed to the jawbone beneath the gums onto which artificial teeth and crowns can be mounted. They offer more stability to the mounted tooth and are a more convenient dental solution.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants fuse to the jawbone and provide a strong, unmoving support to the artificial tooth attached on top. This is a benefit of dental implants as it ensures that the artificial tooth does not slip or slide, especially while eating or talking. As a result of this rigidity and strong support, dental implants feel more natural than other types of dental treatments.
Dental implants differ from bridges and dentures in their fixed nature and strong support. This makes it ideal for people who cannot have dentures and bridges due to the gagging sensation they feel with them.
Another advantage of dental implants is that they do not necessitate the molding and grinding of any other tooth than the one being replaced, as is the case with bridges.
Who should get dental implants?
For successful dental implantation, it is imperative to have strong and healthy gums as well a good bone structure to which the dental implants can be attached. Heritage Oak’s team of well-trained practitioners ensures that you get the most effective dental implant procedure for your teeth.
We advise all our patients to maintain excellent oral hygiene which keeps gums healthy and facilitates the process of dental implantation. Good oral hygiene coupled with regular visits to Heritage Oak Dental ensures that your dental implants will serve you well for several years.
Which dental implant is right for me?
Dental implants vary from patient to patient. Your dentist will work with you to create an individualized dental implant plan for your teeth depending on your specific needs and the condition of your teeth. Based on the number of teeth that need to be replaced, there are three types of dental implants possible which include replacing a single tooth, replacing multiple teeth and replacing all of your teeth. A sinus augmentation procedure may also be required to ensure that the bone structure is sufficiently strong for the implantation. Deformities in the jaw can be corrected using ridge modification to increase chances of a successful implantation and improve the appearance of the implant.
After your dental implants have been fitted, Heritage Oak Dental experts will develop a dental implant care plan for you to ensure your dental implants function smoothly and feel normal. Good oral hygiene and regular visits to Heritage Oak Dental are essential for the long-term success of your implants.
